Phillies | More on Chase Utley's deal
Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley's two-year, $27 million extension gives him the chance to max out at five years and $75 million, according to major league sources. He has three vesting options that will each be worth $15 million, on top of the two guaranteed years. Each of the options will vest at 500 plate appearances, a number that he hasn't reached since 2009. He'll get $15 million guaranteed next year and $10 million in 2015. If Utley fails to reach 500 plate appearances in any of those years, his option will revert to a conditional team option, and the value of those options will range from $5 million to $11 million.
